A list of new books on the Internet, in France, follows here: how can developers "globalize" this thing, without knowing & understanding what the rest of the "globe" is thinking about it? --
-- the big news, to the French as to the rest of us, is Google --
-- and blogs (blagues?) --
-- and the role of the Internet in education, "distance" and otherwise --
-- and, as always, how to cope with digital information in the law -- whether the legal tail is wagging the digital dog, or vice versa --
-- science uses "internetted digital information", increasingly, as its sole means of communication --
-- and so, it seems, does business --
-- and art (?) --
-- and life in general (?) --
-- so, was there life, in fact, before Internet?... will there be life, after it?... the French just love abstract questions... and more among the rest of us should be asking such generalized questions about all of this as well, perhaps...
